"Over the last twenty years there have been several advances in wildlife photography that have resulted in quality images of animals seldom or never filmed before. We wildlife photographers have better, faster lenses, auto focus and motor drive, but it was the combination of these advances plus the opportunity to focus on previously unavailable animals that made the big difference. The subjects were first accessible at the Triple "D", Jay Deist's game farm in Kalispell, Montana. First we had cougars, then wolves, followed by tigers, grizzly bears and small wild cats. Jay was the first and still offers opportunities to film captive-born animal models trained with kindness in natural settings. They're our friends."
